The Sleeping Tree is Giulio Frausin from Italy. In the Spring of 2008, Filippo Aldovini of Zymogen Netlabel recommended this decent guy to us. We got in for a chat, failed to meet in Düsseldorf but agreed on a release somewhat later the year. Giulio's blueprint of low-key Pop- and Folk music was absorbing from the first seconds of his heart rendering "Love is an Eternal Lie" hit single, online as a demo version at myspace back then. The Sleeping Tree appeared with a bitter-sweet...

The young lad behind the Crepusculum-moniker is Fred Baty from London. 'Crepusculum' is latin for sundown and suits the music of our December-release perfectly: the day is done, you're creeping home to take a rest, to chat with the ones you love, to do what life REALLY is about. This ambience of being-at-home is a also a fairly good Christmas-motive, so maybe the best time to enjoy Fred's Sky Diaries EP is now... What does it sound like? If you're down with the 12rec.-backcatalogue, you'll...

it takes tupolev three songs and exactly 12 minutes and 17 seconds to raise their voices. and when they do so, nothing really happens- their singing isn't meant for grapping one's attention, to carry emotion or even content. it's just a further instrument to accomplish their certain vision of contemporary avant-garde folk music. throughout that EP there is a feeling of vagueness and stumbling. tupolev play very slow, add a lot of time-changes and keep rolling around all common harmonies. it's a...

Following Nic Bommarito's "Harp Fragments", this is part II of our "America, the beautiful" series. I am following the enigmatic Derrick Hart for quite a while now. Equally rooted in the chromatics of US-American Folklore and off-key Pop music, Hart is blessed with a wonderful voice and musical talent that makes his compositions shine like nothing else I heard in a while. His four track "Songs from a cross (the sea)" EP is probably the shortest 12rec. release ever...

Protestant Work Ethic is Simon Usaty. Simon is songwriter and one quarter of KES (alongside Bernard Bauch ),eventually Vienna's finest alternative Rock- and Country-outfit and long-time inside tip (listen to "Nordwaggon" on 12rec.032). According to the name of his solo-project, Simon stripped of every superfluous knick-knack, focussing on a few acoustic instruments and his juvenile voice. But as a /protestant work ethic/ might imply a success-orientated, rather rational concept for...

Dusty Window, the first Giraffe EP for 12rec., is a collection of spare and beautiful folk songs. With intricate guitar-work and a characteristic voice, Giraffe is able to reveal more wisdom in a few minutes of his music than most artists can articulate on the length of a full album. "Sad Sister," the opening song, is a call for a woman's liberation. It isn't simply an awkward "do your own thing" cliche, but a plea for individuality in a girl who is worth more than what she...

How long has David Schweighart been around before we first came up with the idea of giving his widespread songs a proper long play release? And then, after a gracious weekend in Dresden, how long did it take to compile, master, design and communicate this precious gem of a an album? Feels like years. With his enormously entitled "Thanks For Listening To This Record Which Made My Hours Pass So Quickly" solo album, David Schweighart enters the stage as one of Vienna's most talented...

I got in contact with Canadian Nicolas Bernier when I wrote a review for his recent solo-release "Ailet l'eau faille by" at No Type-Netlabel. He ordered a bunch of CDrs and after some email chatting, he told me about a special project he's been working on. Nicolas teamed up with Montreal Folk- and improvisational guitarist Simon Trottier for some kind of a concept EP dealing 'bout a stranded objet abandonne. They jammed with acoustic and electric guitar, laptop and toy piano, diverse...

For his new LP "Harp Fragments", Nic decided to hook up with us again. What luck! A lot changed since "Taciturn" and then again everything is the same. You have the dreamy melodies, the bitter-sweet melancholia, that specific Bommarito-feel of being lost in cinescope beauty. While Nic Bommarito is still a loner (despite assistance from his buddy Michael Connolly on viola and harp), the sound on his new album is much more that of a band, a rock band even more. His rhythm...

Russian duo THE RARE PLANTS GARDEN is beatmaker 813 and Nienvox, two fellows that made a good list of solo and cooperative appearances via Bump Foot, Dusted Wax Kingdom, 813âs own Pop Errors Gallery, and just recently Error Broadcast and Project Mooncircle. From this genealogy one might expect THE RARE PLANTS GARDEN to sound just like the other Russian duo here at 12rec., 2010âs high-flyer Monokle & Galun. However 813 and Nienvox concentrate on psychedelic left-field Pop music, banning...

Do these guys need an introduction? Nicolas Bernier and Simon Trottier are two magnificent artists from Montreal, Canada. The former is rooted in academic electronic music and runs the ekumen platform. The later is a Folk-influenced guitarist, one half of Ferriswheel you know from our compilation. Bernier + Trottier released their first record with us back in 2007 which soon became a favourite to both fans and critics. "... et retrouvé en fôret" is the direct successor to...
